The Parable of the Dancing God is an exhilarating retelling of the parable of the Prodigal Son, with the emphasis rightly taken off the sinfulness of the sin and placed on the overwhelming mercy and forgiveness of the father. Baxter's writing oozes grace, and reintroduces the reader to the extravagant love of a God who comes running to welcome us in Jesus Christ.
The only reason I did not give this five stars is that this edition (published by IVP) is missing some of the best material from Baxter's original book. If you can get your hands on the original, with the added chapters, do so!
finally a book summarizing the Gospel of Jesus Christ from Scripture in a manner that anyone can read and understand. The author stands very much in the tradition of Torrance and Barth, having studied under J.B. Torrance, and yet writes in a style that the greatest scholar to the least experienced spiritual seeker can understand. Highly recommend to those who are searching for a beautiful summary of the Good News of Jesus Christ.
